Rob Carr/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) — The Philadelphia Eagles are off to another disappointing start to their season and quarterback Michael Vick admitted that major changes could be coming, including a quarterback change.

The Eagles fell to 3-4 and while Vick isn’t the only reason the team has struggled, he’s a part of the team’s problem. Last week, Reid fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and rumors have swirled since then that more changes could be on the way. Vick knows that could mean he loses his starting job.

“Obviously, he’s thinking about making a change at the quarterback position,” Vick told reporters after the loss. “The thing I do know, and I’ll go watch the film and I’ll evaluate myself, is that I’m giving us every opportunity to win.”

Since Vick signed a six-year deal worth $100 million prior to last season, but he hasn’t lived up to expectations. Since Vick signed his deal, the team has gone 11-12.

If Reid does decide to make a change at quarterback, the likely choice to replace Vick would be rookie and second-stringer Nick Foles. Foles has never thrown an NFL pass other than in preseason.
